    Default Central Locking & General Module

    I took the 530 to the stealer today and had them check out some sunroof squirreliness that has been taking place for a little while. They said that it might be a fault in the general module, but when I picked the car up, the central locking system wasn't working either. This was not a problem before.

    So I went back inside, and they said that I would have to come back next week, and that more than likely the general module needed to be replaced (*another $400*)....but this was never a problem before, so I'm wondering if they didn't plug something back in when they were monkeying around back there.

    Does anyone know where the central locking connects to the general module? I know that the module is under the rear seat, but I don't know where to look specifically. Any help would be appreciated.

    Default Figured it out me-self

    Just disco'd the battery, unplugged the GM, and plugged it back in....central locking works! Damn stealer techs.
